I've had an opportunity to watch police officers do their job and train. While it's not a career for everyone. It can be very satisfying for those folks who want to serve their community, help people, and make a good living. It's not for the faint of heart, and it's something I couldn't do today at my age. However, if I had explored the job earlier in my life, it might have been my career.
